Hello,

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office was listed by the Federal Aviation Administration as an agency that had applied for a Certificate of Authorization to fly drones. Here is a link to the list: http://markey.house.gov/sites/markey.house.gov/files/documents/FAA%20drones%20response.pdf

Could you please check again to see whether CCSO has any responsive records related to UAVs/drones? This would include all materials submitted to the FAA in support of its application for a COA, as well as documents related to the purchase of UAV equipment.

Thank you,
